This restaurant was across the street from our hotel, The Tremont House, but we went there several times because it was so good. Nothing fancy but the food and service were exceptional. Shrimp was very fresh and tasty. Loved it!!

Shrimp 'N Stuff Restaurant opened in 1976 and quickly became known as "the place where the locals love to eat." In these past 38 years we have had many guests visiting our fine city from across the U.S. who tell us they wished they had found Shrimp 'N Stuff the first day they arrived and assured us they will be back several times before they leave Galveston.
